Happy Earth Day! My kids have been busy doing activities this week, focusing on what the Earth does for all inhabitants and how important it is for us as humans. We've also been discussing ecologically friendly choices that our family can do everyday to help improve the Earth. Over the years, we have been gradually reducing our use of plastics.  There are BILLIONS of plastic toothbrushes discarded each year all around the world. For our family of 6, we go through about 18 toothbrushes a year, or more.  One small change from a plastic toothbrush, to a natural, biodegradable bamboo toothbrush can positively impact our environment right now and improve it for future generations.

While I was shopping online, I found Fifth & Eco and purchased their Kids Charcoal Bamboo Toothbrushes.  This pack has 4 toothbrushes included, with different animal designs to help interest kids in brushing their teeth, as well as letting us all know whose is whose!  The brush is made of extra soft nylon bristles infused with activated charcoal for a more thorough clean.  The handle is made of sustainable, natural bamboo with vegan glue.  The packaging is from recycled materials.  Lastly, but definitely not least, I was very excited that these toothbrushes are super budget-friendly as well! After trying out the toothbrushes, I actually emailed the company to share my satisfaction.  I wanted to offer a full blog review to give others a chance to understand this brand better.

Breastfeeding Pads
DIY Breast Pads Tutorial
Why spend money where you don’t need to? Disposable breast pads can cost anywhere from fifty cents up to one dollar per day and at the end of the day, it all goes in the trash! But you can make your own stylish and functional breast pads very easily. The basic pad is an outer fabric with absorbent layers. You can pick out fabrics with patterns or even use things you already have around the house to save even more money.

It's World Breastfeeding Week (August 1-7) and here on Latched On Mom we're celebrating with a week-long breastfeeding extravaganza! Moms deserve proper support so they can be successful at accomplishing their breastfeeding goals. I know breastfeeding is not exactly the same for every mom and it can be different with every child. I have had plenty of ups and downs between all 4 of my kids, but I'm so thankful for everything I have done. Moms are superheroes!! I have found some really amazing companies that truly get that breastfeeding is unique for each of us... they want to be a helpful tool to make things a little easier and for moms to feel stronger throughout their journeys. Every day there has been a new giveaway!  We're wrapping up World Breastfeeding Week with this HUGE Pumping Mom's Prize Pack! Valued at approximately $240!
